Blasphemy is one of those made up crimes that I have a hard time understanding. You should not need to die because you said, Jehovah, Jesus-Christ, or the secret name of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. It just words. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve offered a heartfelt “Jesus Christ” in place of fuck. It’s an everyday expression. People who are offended by it wear their religion on their sleeves.
Reverend Paul Clarke will lose his job for uttering Jesus Christ in anger. How funny is that?
Reverend Paul Clarke is accused of using the phrase "Jesus Christ" during a foul-mouthed outburst at the teacher of St Barnabas Anglican church in Mt Eden, Auckland.
Church members say the congregation and Sunday School shrunk after the incident, and about 20 members took their concerns to Auckland Bishop John Paterson.
Religion is crazy.
